Holiday Play Schemes

We run play schemes in every school holiday period throughout the year, except for bank holidays and Christmas.

Our clubs provide a wide variety of activities within our purpose-built playbase and outside in the beautiful Tarner park. Activities change daily and range from face painting to den making, football to Playdough and from creating Easter bonnets to dunking in Halloween goo! We have lots of Lego, stacks of board games and bundles of arty materials for all to explore at their leisure. We also offer a wide range of creative sessions lead by professionals in areas such as dance, photography, theatre etc.

We serve a different breakfast every day and a fully cooked veggie meal in the afternoon. However parents/carers are required to provide a healthy packed lunch for their child’s midday meal.

The safety of the children attending our clubs is paramount at all times.
